I am a graduate from William Fremd High School in Palatine, Illinois. During my time there I was on the Honor Roll every semester. I took multiple honors courses and 10 AP classes all the while participating in 2 Varsity Sports (basketball, volleyball) as well as serving as a leader in my church youth group. I had a very busy high school career with countless awards that prepared me for a bright future at Boston College. In my first year there, I was on the Deans List while working two jobs and playing Club Volleyball.
As far as my tutoring experience and methods, I spent a period a day tutoring at my high school's tutoring center. I am not the type to simply spit out information or answers. I believe that there is some good in struggling through their subjects. It builds perseverance and also, in my opinion, allows them to retain information longer if they have struggled and fought through it themselves. What I would do is simply show them different methods of thinking about problems in order to find the one that they like best. Often times kids get overwhelmed when they read a word problem of some sort but what I would do is show them how to break them down into simpler steps. It not only builds their understanding but from what I've seen it builds confidence. Lastly, what I would emphasize on is time management. I had a busy academic schedule as well as basketball and volleyball practice and games. I understand that there are a lot of things to do and just not enough time. It is all about prioritizing and being efficient with your time even if that means doing homework on the bus rides before games.
I have been playing basketball for 6 years now. I played on my varsity team as well as various tournaments throughout high school career.
I was a 2 sport athlete during high school. I workout every day. I understand the importance of full body fitness which is why I have started crossfit training.
Because of all of my commitments and activities I did not have a lot of time to study which is why I needed to make the most out of my short time. I will do condensed study times of twenty or thirty minutes with breaks in between to not overwhelm my mind and it has worked out great. I got a 32 on my act and only two 4s on my AP tests with the rest being 5s.
I was a 3 year varsity starting setter. I was selected MSL All-Conference as well as Daily Herald All-Area. I am currently a member of the Club Volleyball team at Boston College
